Internship details

Cybersecurity & Ethical Hacking interns out of Argentina play an important role in ensuring the safety of websites and IT networks across a range of companies and public organizations. Interns conduct authorized penetration tests to identify security vulnerabilities and recommend improvements.

This is a remote internship you can conduct from home.

This is an ideal opportunity for interns looking to gain experience in the field of cybersecurity and understand how to protect networks from cyber attacks. Interns gain relevant, up-to-date knowledge of hacking techniques and learn about the ethics of conducting authorized attacks with potentially sensitive information.

Ethical hacking is an increasingly in-demand skill among large public and private entities looking to protect themselves from cyber attackers. In this internship, you’ll play the role of a hacker attempting to break into the networks and systems of your placement company, and recommend steps to ensure these vulnerabilities are protected.

Interns conduct a range of penetration tests, learning how hackers conduct cyber attacks and the ways in which they compromise systems. This information is highly valuable, and enables companies to protect their interests and those of their customers. You’ll also write detailed reports based on your testing, explaining where vulnerabilities exist and recommending ways they can be addressed. Depending on your level of technical expertise, there may also be opportunities to implement your recommended fixes.

Interns initially conduct experiments in a controlled laboratory environment, with daily virtual progress meetings with your supervisor. Depending on your skills and ability, you’ll then be immersed into real environments, conducting tests on live websites, networks and systems.

Placements are available in government organizations, banks, finance companies, e-commerce companies and other organizations that value their cybersecurity interests. Interns should have background knowledge of computer networks, operating systems (MS Windows and Linux), web applications and cybersecurity. Please state your experiences and qualifications when you apply.
